How can you not appreciate this view and this house? Steve is the point man and helps in so many ways. He went above and beyond just like last time so we felt like family. We can't wait to set up something for summertime.

Relaxing Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing. There isn't a single detail that the owners haven't thought of. From the chest of dog toys in the family room, to the bluetooth speakers on the patio, down to the rod holders built into the dock and benches on the sea wall. All you need to bring is food and clothes. There's a market across the street just in case you forgot something, which we really appreciated.

We spent the majority of our stay on the back deck and dock, fishing, playing in the water and taking in the panoramic view. We managed to catch a number of smaller bass and bluegill along with a 4lb largemouth and a 10+ pound catfish all from the dock/sea wall.

This place is perfect for just about anyone looking to enjoy some relaxing time on water. Also, a big thank you to Steve the property manager for always making himself available to address any issues/questions that we had before and during our stay.

Look forward to returning!

Amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This really is "Haven on the Lake." Fishing, kayaking, swimming, enjoying the sunsets, feeding the ducks, the fire pit, all made this a memorable vacation for our family. The house itself is very clean and I mean VERY CLEAN and decorated perfectly. You can tell that the owners really care for this home by the attention to detail. It had all the amenities that we needed. It's location directly across the street from the Market which made it easy for last minute snacks we craved. To be able to fish directly off the dock is priceless. We lost count on the amount of Blue Gill we caught, but we will be back to try and catch a Black Bass. We can't thank Michael and Pam enough for sharing their home. Can't wait to enjoy it again next Summer. It can't come soon enough.

Better than we ever could have imagined!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home. It was a vacation we so desperately needed and your home met and exceeded all of our expectations!!! We spent the last evening sitting on the benches watching the sunset and talking and sharing because the atmosphere created the best opportunity for relaxing and resting and made the perfect evening. It was our 30th anniversary and it could not have been spent better. The bed was too die for and we are currently looking for a distributor in our area so we can have the same mattress in our home. All we have to do now is find a lake we can buy and put in our backyard to re-create our vacation at Clear Lake. Steve was wonderful and made sure we knew how to work all things at the house and told us we could contact him if we needed anything and that made us feel very at ease should something arise. We loved the music you had programmed and wondered what type of music station it was? It was truly wonderful and we will be back, ASAP!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: We are so delighted that you both enjoyed your stay at our little Haven on the Lake. It is Michael and my Happy Place to get away from everything. The music we have programmed in is a few of the Pandora stations which we picked to give a wide variety of music for our guest to pick from. Happy Anniversary and we look forward to your return visit with us:-)

Truly a Exeptional Experience

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start. What a great place to stay. It is obvious the second you walk through the front gate there is a lot of pride taken in this property. It had it all. The whole trip started off very well with Steve. He let us in and showed us everything Haven on The Lake had to offer. Well beyond our expectations. We came for the fishing but it was our stay here that will bring us back. Already looking at the schedule for our return.

quiet, roomy and clean with beautiful views of the lake from the back yard

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at Haven on the Lake for work related reasons. The new updates are great and the house and yard are pet-friendly and safe. What a perfect place to come back to after very long work days. We will certainly stay here again should our work bring us back to the area in the coming years. Thank you , Pam, Mike, and Steve for your kindness and professionalism.

We were beyond impressed with all of the fine details in this home! The pictures do not do it justice! This home is so comfortable, safe and inviting. The kitchen is a culinary dream. Everything you need to prepare you favorite meal is right here. Before you start with dinner, stop by Vigilance tasting room and pick up some Shannon Ridge wines to complete that meal! Lake County is the up and coming AVA!!! The owners of this home and Steve are friendly and accommodating. Thank you for everything, we look forward to another stay at Haven on the Lake!

Owner's Response: Thank you Ronney and Randy for being such great guests. Our dock had some damage in the storms and you both were so understanding which we so appreciated. I think Randy is a 5 star fisherman catching over 200 bass in 5 days! That was a first for us:-)

A Bit of History

Welcome to Lucerne, Ca, located in Lake County. Lucerne sits on Clear Lake which is known as the 'Bass Capital Of The West!' Clear Lake is a popular hot spot for spectacular water recreation sports including fishing, water skiing, boating, and swimming. There are several fishing guides in the area as well as boat, kayak, and ski rental outfits to help make your stay an exciting adventure.

Clear Lake is the largest natural lake entirely in California, and has the largest surface area of any freshwater lake entirely in California, the tenth largest by capacity. It is said to be approximately 480,000 years old by genealogists, making the lake one of the oldest lakes in North America and boy the fish prove that! The lake lies in the crater of an ancient volcano. Traveling around the lake you will see continuous mountain ranges, scenic byways, and breathtaking sunsets while visiting the many wineries and casinos in the area.

Relax and breath the fresh air! Lucerne, and surrounding locations around the lake, as having the cleanest air in California. Pick up your free vial of 'clean air' at the local visitor center in Lucerne.

  • A wonderful area next door, a park like area where your kayaks and dogs can easily go in and out of the water. We keep the bottom of our dock at least 2 1/2 feet above the water level due to the possibility of an afternoon breeze that can cause waves.
